  1. it'll give you the option to format or not.
  2. thanks for the quick reply, trying to install vista 64 but seems theres problems in paridise. it locks up while trying to load windows i get as far as the little rolling green bars on the bottom of the screen and they roll a couple of times then just stop.... Now i've got 4 gigs of ddr3 mem installed could i need to remove 2gigs til after the installation?
  3. It shouldn't be a problem. I have XP64 and Vista64 Business on my home machine, and I didn't make any changes when I installed.
  4. List Specs???????????????????????????????????

    4 gigs of ddr3 meaning? what 2 x 2 = 4 or 4 x 1 = 4

    Whats the brand? speed ETC?????????

    Memory timings and voltage may need to be set manually, especially if its OCZ
  5. oh sorry here are the specs:
    intel core 2 quad q9550
    msi x48c platnium mobo
    4 1 gig pc 10600 mem sticks by super talent
    1 sata hitachi deskstar 7k1000 h.d.
    I checked everythink out before i bought them but maybe something slipped by me....
  6. Do what 4ryan6 said and if that does not do it then install with 2 gig and see what happens.

    Are you seeing this abortive windows screen early, shortly after booting the DVD, or later, well into the install? If it's early on you may also want to try another optical drive.
